Purpose

The data release provides a detailed digital field verified shapefile of irrigated agricultural land-use within Hendry and Palm Beach Counties, Florida and a table summarizing the results for each county between January and October 2019. The land-use shapefile and acreage tables produced for this study will be compared to the Florida Statewide Agricultural Irrigation Demand (FSAID) Irrigated Lands Geodatabase (IGL), version VI (The Balmoral Group, 2019) totals for Hendry and Palm Beach Counties. Field-verified data on crop type, irrigated lands, and acreage summaries provide FDACS a more accurate basis for estimating current and future water demands. Details on the procedures and methodologies used for mapping and field verification in Hendry and Palm Beach Counties can be found in Marella and others (2020).
